      And that's Archibald Catt done! Records merged to the Primary you requested Valerie. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/751255.
      Medal card already copied, thank you. Now please unRemember the duplicate and remove him from the Community and we are all done.
      Phew, that's enough for me for now ... time for a change of pace!
      Thanks,

      Ok, Valerie, that's William Evans sorted. I have merged the duplicate to the Primary you suggested. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4980755 You have already attached the extra Medal Card to the Primary, so that is fine. All I need you to do now is unRemember the duplicate and remove him from your Community. That will prepare the record for eventual deletion.
      Thanks,

      Hi Valerie,
      I am starting work on this request, but please could I ask that in future you submit just one man per request ticket as it makes the logging and processing tasks for our little team of volunteers much easier. I will be back in touch again once I have processed each man.
      Thanks,

        Hi Valerie,
        Thanks for this one! A four way merge ... including a DCM, fantastic! I have merged the three lesser records to the more populated Primary you suggested. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4986386
        I see you have already attached the other three Medal Cards to the Primary, which has saved me a job, thank you!
        Please could I ask that you unRemember the other three records and remove them from any Communities. This will prepare them for eventual deletion.
        Thanks,
        Linda,

          Hi Valerie,
          I have merged the Life Stories for this man to the Primary record you suggested. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/3274750
          I notice you have Remembered the duplicate record, I have copied across the Medal Card record from the duplicate to the Primary, so if you can unRemember that record it will be ready for deletion in due course.
          Thanks,

                Hi John,
                I have created a Life Story for this man, https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7684107 and attached his CWGC record and the Naval Casualty record which you supplied.
                Thanks,

                  Hi Sue,
                  I do like a puzzle!
                  The obvious candidate is Francis Pitson b.1883 in Nuneham Courtney, brother to Ambrose Pitson (killed in 1914), both sons of Joseph and Fanny. However he turns up in Sandford on Thames in 1911, and is still there in 1939 married to Florence. Probably the man who dies in 1956.
                  There was another Francis Pitson born around the same time in Littlemore, Oxfordshire, son of Charles and Annie, but he marries Charlotte, is in Conisbrough, Yorkshire in 1911 and is probably the man whose death is registered in Doncaster in 1949.
                  I notice that most of the online Ancestry trees mix these two men up.

                  Like you I can find no military records which fit the details on your war memorial. Not even a Silver War Badge which I would expect if a man was discharged sick or wounded, maybe to die much later, after the CWGC cut off date. There is an Abingdon associated F. Pitson mentioned in a local newspaper as being wounded and in Manchester Hospital in 1915, but no regiment is given.
                  Sorry, but this has beaten me. I will highlight the puzzle to my fellow volunteers and see if anyone else can work it out.
                  You can contact me direct on barnsleyhistorian@gmail.com if you can think of any other clues maybe with a photo of the memorial inscription.
                  Thanks, and keep up the good work,
                  Linda

                      Hi Eddie,
                      Happy to make the Life Story you had begun to improve the Primary. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1179335
                      Its seed is a very useful Medal Card that links the New Zealand man to the 2nd Lt in the Scottish Rifles and onto the Lancers. What a complex story!
                      I wish you all the best with your research.

                        I have merged these men to https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1639709 as the Primary.
                        You have already attached his duplicate MIC, thank you. Could you please 'unremember' the duplicate and then we'll be all sorted.
                        Thanks,

                          Hi Michael,
                          I am not convinced these are the same man. Aside from them being in different regiments, the 1495508 man was discharged in August 1916 with a Silver War Badge. His middle initial, if you look at the images of his medal card and Silver War Badge records on Ancestry is F.
                          The 1495507 man, who does not have a J as his middle initial either on his medal card or in the POW records, was a POW in Bulgaria in July 1916.
                          Have you some evidence that I cannot see that they are the same man please?
                          Thanks,
                          Linda

                                I have merged William Reid to this record as Primary as it already had an image attached. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5085307
                                Thanks,

                                I have merged Fred Day to this record as Primary. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5025188
                                Please note that you gave three links for this merge, but two were to the same record!
                                Thanks,

                                  Hi Jane,
                                  Thanks for the update. I have created a record for Richard using the Pension record as the evidence I needed.

                                  Can you supply a link to some evidence that we can use to create a Life Story for this man? A service record, newspaper cutting, Silver War Badge record? Family papers?
                                  Thanks,

                                    Hi Deborah,
                                    I was confused because one man, 1281701, was called Gaffoor, the other two Gonsalves. Then I spotted you had attached a SWB record giving both names to this man. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1374342
                                    So I have made him the Primary and linked the other two.
                                    Sometimes we need an explanation please, just to make the work flow a bit quicker!
                                    Thanks,
                                    Linda

                                        Hi Sue,
                                        I have created a Life Story for Edwin White.
                                        https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7683891
                                        I see he is in a Reserve Battalion. I assume he is an old soldier, maybe training recruits? He did not serve abroad, so no medals awarded. Thus no MIC for seeding in Lives initial upload.
                                        Thanks,
                                        Linda
